a nice move by @googlecloud recently. they've cleaned up the already great developer experience

the moves are summed up in this post…

some thoughts 👇

🧵 #cloud #devops @googlecloud these changes are non-breaking. that SHOULD be the standard when dealing with APIs and SDKs but, sadly, it isn't everywhere

nice to see @googlecloud setting an example here

the biggest disappointment I have with @awscloud IAM is that people don't use it like a dynamic system

permissions are still granted on/off, very few teams add a time component in there but they are starting to with roles

...I think there's more there

🧵☁️ #cloud #security of course, that tweet probably gave @ben11kehoe a heart attack (sorry Ben!)

...on that note, Ben just published ANOTHER fantastic post on @awscloud IAM, he's on a roll lately

next up is IAM with Karen Haberkorn

@awscloud #reinforce …and the challenge of virtual events rears it ugly head. other more pressing matters popped up and I’ve missed what seems like a great talk and discussion on IAM 😔

yesterday I spun up 36x @awscloud EC2 instances to build out a weird sample data set

today, trying to get an exact cost for that work, it hits home (again) why @quinnypig has a very successful business

a story...

🧵 ☁️ #cloud #devops ok, so I spun up the instances via python/boto3 (all old-school like) because I had a unique user-data script to each to execute and then shutdown

super simple 👇
